Gay marriage: be afraid, be very afraid

It’s this kind of thing — a new, totally rad T-shirt logo from Wordboner — that scares the bejeezus out of homophobes like the National Organization for Marriage. So frightened are they of an imaginary army of gay soldiers forcing them into a life of sodomy that they put together this gem of fear-tactic propaganda (our favorite line, with our own italics: “We’ve put together a rainbow coalition of people of every creed and color who are coming together in love to protect marriage”). Naturally, it took about two seconds for a slew of parodies to hit the Internets — one of the best so far is “from” Restoring Integrity to Marriage or “RIM” (see RimsJob.org, tee hee). For a non-parody antidote to this kind of bigotry, check out Iowa State Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal’s response to Minority Leader Paul McKinley and his efforts to amend Iowa’s constitution in order to undo the recent unanimous decision by the state’s Supreme Court to legalize gay marriage.
